Today we welcome Armand Rosamilia! If you’re a zombie fan, Armand has plenty of books to choose from – if zombies aren’t your thing, he’s also written other horror, thrillers, contemporary fiction, and more.
The end of the world is upon us… the zombie plague has taken over… and your former friends and loved ones don’t want to just kill and eat you… they want to violate you…
Randy is in search of a safe haven. He finds more than he bargained for when he comes across Becca, who isn’t exactly what she seems. Sometimes the zombies aren’t the worst thing out there.
Includes the bonus short story “Rear Guard”
The kickoff to the extreme zombie “Dying Days” series!
How long have you been writing horror/thrillers and what drew you to the genre?
I’ve been writing since my teen years, when I started reading Dean Koontz books at 12 years old. It’s all I ever wanted to do, although it took my until my forties to actually get to be a full-time author. I never stopped writing and had some sporadic sales over the years.
How did you come up with the idea for your book?
It came about because of a publisher call for extreme zombie fiction. I wrote it and loved the world I’d created. When it just missed the cut I knew I had to publish it myself. I wanted the zombies to be really horrible and the survivors as well, which would add so much more conflict than the typical zombie story.
If you could erase one horror cliché, what would it be?
The cliché that all horror writers can’t write anything of worth, and anything but horror. I write in a number of genres. I’m just mostly known for the horror and zombie stuff.
What are you working on now?
I always have 5-7 projects going at once. In the midst of “Dying Days 6” (which is what sprung out of “Highway To Hell”) as well as a crime thriller, a paranormal romance, a horror humor series, contemporary fiction and a Lovecraftian short. Busy, busy.
Favorite horror movie and book?
I’m actually not a huge horror movie fan anymore. My favorite zombie movie is the Dawn of The Dead remake. Love it. Favorite zombie book is The Rising by Brian Keene.
